Solicitors Profile

Kara MacGregor-Duke

Kara has gained extensive experience in Family Law during her career and joined our firm in May 2022 as an Associate Solicitor. Before qualifying as a Solicitor in 2017 she was a Family Law Paralegal for over 10 years. Kara trained at one of the top Legal 500 Firms in Scotland, and as a result of her experience in family law, was awarded a reduction in the length of her traineeship by the Law Society of Scotland. This is something which is rarely offered by the Law Society, and to be applicable a candidate must be able to show their significant experience.

Family Law Experience

As a Solicitor she has acted for many clients, and the majority of her work is in Family Law.  This type of work is her specialism. Kara strongly believes in building a good rapport with her clients, and her clients say that they appreciate her delicate, but firm, approach and the support that she provides to them. Kara recognises that in separating, or in disputes regarding matters relating to children, this is an emotional and stressful time.  Kara will try to find positive solutions for her clients, which can include thinking outside the box however, is always keen to find a proactive resolution for her clients. 

Kara is a trained Collaborative Solicitor, which is a process which allows separated parties to formally separate without the threat of Court proceedings. The purpose of collaboration is to allow parties to agree together on matters of dispute in a safe environment. Kara has acted for many clients in the collaborative process, some of whom initially did not think this was a process for them. However results were achieved in a positive way allowing her clients to move on with their lives. Kara is of the view that, where possible, alternative dispute resolution should be considered. Kara is of the view that Court proceedings should only be considered where absolutely necessary.

Although Kara makes a conscious effort to try and resolve matters and keep the clients out of Court, some Court proceedings are inevitable.  With that, Kara has a wealth of Court experience acting for clients in matters of financial provision upon divorce, relocation of children, adoption of children, contact and residence of children.  She also has significant experience in seeking protective orders for persons who have suffered abuse.

Kara also has a keen interest in the welfare of children, and ensuring their voices are heard.  Kara volunteers as a Children’s Panel Member in her home town.

I would highly recommend Simplicity Legal. They have been provided a brilliant service for me the last couple of years dealing with power of attorney, sorting out my dads estate after his death and buying and selling my house. I mainly dealt with Kirsten who was excellent explaining all the processes and keeping me updated. Would definitely use Simplicity again in the future

I was recently introduced to Simplicity Legal Glasgow by a colleague who had used the firm to help him with his divorce proceedings. I took that advice and am really delighted that I did. They were incredibly professional and responsive, constantly striking a balance between being empathetic and ruthlessly efficient/candid when the situation warranted it. Everything was described in layman's terms, with advantages and cons clearly highlighted and always expense transparency. I felt supported by the proper level of guidance provided, but the final decision was always mine. I cannot recommend the Simplicity Legal team highly enough. Thank you for all of your help.

My husband and I cannot thank Simplicity Solicitors Glasgow enough for their professional assistance with our claim; we were very pleased with the entire process. They kept us updated on the progress of the process,. The solicitors with whom we dealt with, were very understanding and helpful, and explained everything to us in a way that we understood. They are a very professional company, and I would recommend their services to anyone who needed information or assistance. We are grateful to have them represent us.

In my experience Clarity and Simplicity are a very reliable firm. At the moment it's not easy to find reliable solicitors, and in fact I approached Clarity and Simplicity after a rather bad experience with another company. I was pleasantly surprised by Kirsten's efficiency and the way things were handled. Highly recommended.
